About a month ago, I booked myself a flight to Copenhagen, home of the colorful houses in Nyhavn, smørrebrød and the famous The Little Mermaid statue. Three days for myself, to myself, in the capital of Denmark, a city I’ve never been before. There’s something unexpectedly inspiring about waking up in an exciting, new place and getting to know its quirkiness all by yourself. Let my blog with Copenhagen snapshots inspire you to take a little solo trip yourself. And the destination? København, of course. It’s well worth it, believe me.
Flown over from the Asian skin care industry, sheet masks rejuvenated me-time and the world of face masks last autumn. Selfies with sheet masks keep popping up and every self-respecting cosmetic brand has launched their own twist on this trend. Adoring this breeze of fresh (skin) care but appalled by the insane prices for something you throw away 10 minutes later, I never really bothered trying a sheet mask. That is, until I stumbled upon Kruidvat’s home-brand sheet mask, retailing at merely 99 cents per mask. Intrigued? I was. And you very much should be, too.
Sun is shining, lipstick is swee-heet! It’s time for a new Face of the Day and in honor of the many days of sunshine we’re having lately, I plunged into my lipstick stash and I picked out this pink beauty. It’s a matte lipstick by NYX and I think it looks adorable with a natural face and an outfit with soft colors. Be the judge yourself!
I know, I know — it was about time I jumped on this bandwagon. Ever since NikkieTutorials confessed she used her man’s aftershave balm as a primer, the world’s gone crazy. Supposedly, it’s the perfect foundation primer. Ever since she uploaded that particular video, the Nivea Men Aftershave Balm sold out like crazy all over the world. Ah, the Nikkie effect! This weekend I was happy to casually stumble upon a recently stocked shelf with Nivea Men’s Aftershave Balm. I decided it was time to take the leap and today, I’m irrevocably ready to put the queen herself to the test: how amazing is this lotion really?
Shopping around Christmas time is my absolute favorite. My ultimate weakness is anything that shimmers — sequins, glitter, rhinestones, I love it all — and during the holidays, you find this splendor every corner you turn. This time of the year, I’m definitely in my element. I’m not going to make glitter bender jokes (whoops, just did) but I’m going to introduce you to the hair sensation to make your look complete this holiday season. Straight from Santa’s town, 2015’s newest hair trend, my Christmas miracle: the glitter roots! And yes, it really is all kinds of amazing.
Squadgoals. Squadgoals everywhere. Backstage at the Victoria’s Secret show, all you see is smiling faces, spontaneous peace signs and cheeky winks. Judging by the many behind-the-scenes shots, we’re lucky to see some of the world’s best models getting ready for the catwalk. The energy backstage looks absolutely amazing! I think it must’ve been an extraordinary experience for both models and crew to be a part of this year’s show. Be a little naughty and take a peek behind the pink curtain with me. Come on, let’s sneak backstage. You know you want to…
